Democrat Stacey Abrams said on "The View" on Monday that she is ready to run for vice president and she hopes to be president of the United States one day.
When asked if she would run for vice president on a Democratic nominee's ticket, she answered, "of course I would be honored to run for vice president with the nominee."
She added it's a "bit disconcerting" to discuss running for vice president because no one in the Democratic field, not even Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, has asked her to team up with them.
"It seems really obnoxious for me to say that out loud since no one has asked me," Abrams said.
"The issue is, as a woman of color, especially as a Black woman, this is an unusual position to be in.... It would be doing a disservice to every woman of color, every woman of ambition, every child who wants to think beyond their known space for me to say 'No,' or to pretend, 'Oh no, I don't want it.' Of course I want it, Of course I want to serve America. Of course I want to be a patriot and do this work, and so I say, 'Yes.'"
Abrams lost the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race to Republican Brian Kemp, and then famously refused to concede the race she lost, questioning the legitimacy of the election results.
She has never held a public office higher than a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives.
